What you'll learn in this tea class:

In this class, you'll learn the history and how to create a bubble tea.

Whether you call it bubble tea, pearl milk tea, boba, or any of a million other names, there's one thing we can all agree on: putting weird gelatinous spheres in your drink is an oddly great idea.

We'll start from bubble tea's "official" creation in the 80's, tracing its roots back through drinks throughout Asia. From Malaysian yam puddings to refreshing Thai summer drinks, bubble tea is a gateway drink to a whole world of confectionary libations.

Several versions of bubble tea and related drinks will be prepared, from working with the tapioca balls to brewing the teas. As an added bonus, the age-old mystery of "How in the world is Thai iced tea so orange?" will also be solved.

Note: Weather permitting, this class will take place outside in our backyard.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
